Staffordshire Census

Staffordshire Census Surname Indexes at the Family History Library

Gotoarrow.png England Gotoarrow.png County Staffordshire

Today, there are many useful websites and computer indexes for all of the England, Wales and Scotland.  These include those found at FamilySearch.org, the UK National Archives, Ancestry.com, FindMyPast, etc.  These are a good place to begin your search for people in the census.

There are, however, times when you cannot find your ancestor in these large indexes.  Perhaps, a mistake was made when these large indexes were made, or a person's name was not easy to recognize in the census enumeration book, or the surname was spelled differently.  In such a situation, you may be able to find your ancestor in the census by using a smaller surname index for the parish or town of interest.  When looking at a smaller index, it can be easier to pick out an alternative spelling of a person's surname.  These indexes are also ideal for finding all of the people with a specific surname in a specific location.

Many of these are available, in book and microfiche form.  The Family History Library (Salt Lake City, Utah, USA) has a large and growing collection of these smaller indexes. 

Below is a list of libary call numbers at the Family History Library that the Library has in its collection of census surname indexes for the County of Staffordshire.  The call numbers are shown for the census years from 1841 - 1871 and 1891.  The surname indexes that are part of the Library's collection are indexed by place, parish and census year.  Each header column contains a symbol.  If you click on this symbol, it will sort the information by that column.  For example, if you would like to know all of the indexes that in the Library's collection for a specific parish, then click on the symbol by the header for the parish column. You can resort by the place by clicking of the symbol by the place header.  A dot or a period in a table cell indicates that there is no index for this place for a given census year in the Library's collection.

The 1881 surname index books have not been tabulated in this reference table since the FamilySearch has a large nationwide surname index for this year.  The library is indebted to Elder Jordan Glew for his work over the years to keep this index current.
